One “must” for this week
The ideal team players. Patrick Lencioni says they possess three key qualities: humility, hunger, and smartness.
Humble: they prioritize the team's success over personal interests and give credit to others.
Hungry: they are driven to seek more work and responsibility, going above and beyond when necessary.
Smart: they have common sense when dealing with people, understand where others are coming from, and act appropriately.
